Kindergarten classes at both Park Avenue and Sanfordville hosted book readings last week! The events showcased the the original works of student authors, and was the culmination of lots of hard work and creativity.

There is plenty of evidence that early childhood education figures prominently in the development of writing skills and the myriad multidisciplinary benefits that come with. When young students get writing experience, it helps to establish a foundation upon which literacy learning can build. Studies have also shown that having young students share their writing with others helps them perceive themselves as authors, and can build confidence and communication skills.

Students in Theresa Canfield’s and Patricia Teskera’s classes both held author celebrations last week, on March 22. In Ms. Canfield’s class the students celebrated the completion of their first books. They read from their books and displayed their accompanying illustrations to a rotating group of visitors, including peers, faculty and staff. Family members were also invited to Park Avenue for the event. The books by the Park Avenue kindergarten authors are now available to enjoy on their own special shelf in the Park Avenue library.

In Ms. Teskera’s PIE kindergarten class at Sanfordville, the students wrapped up a writing unit by writing their own “How-To” books. The project was actually the wrap-up of a unit about snow, so students wrote their own winter-themed instructional books. The students were challenged to synthesize and organize all of their brand-new knowledge about snow into informative books. The Sanfordville author event also welcomed faculty, staff, administration and families to attend, and the authors were delighted to read their books to their families and classmates. 

Congratulation and great work, everyone!
